Couple dies in horror road accident on way to their wedding

Couple killed in crash driving to their wedding

A bride and groom driving to their wedding in Pittsburgh were killed in a fiery crash when a tractor-trailer rammed into them, according to a report.

A previous crash had already stopped traffic in the area, and an oncoming tractor-trailer could not slow down in time and struck Kathryn Schurtz and her fiance Joseph Kearney's vehicle, shoving it into another trailer and causing the auto to go up in flames, NBC Philadelphia reported.

Schurtz worked as Head of Platform Partnerships for Oracle Data Cloud in New York City, according to NBC 4.

She survived by her parents, Joseph and Karen; sister, Kimberly, her sister and brother-in-law Joanne and Kevin Schwoer; and her three-month-old nephew Landon Schwoer. The tractor-trailer slammed into the couple's auto causing a chain reaction crash that ultimately involved four other tractor-trailers in addition to the couple's vehicle, LehighValleyLive.com reported. A tractor-trailer reportedly hit their vehicle when it couldn't slow down before reaching the traffic ahead.

Schurtz and Kearney were driving from New Jersey to Pittsburgh for their wedding, an obituary stated.


Her mother was a former Fanwood, New Jersey, councilwoman, according to the town's Facebook page.

Kearney's aunt Mary Kay Heinle also paid tribute to the couple on Facebook, writing: 'Our lives changed tragically last Thursday.

"Our memories will help carry us through".

Kathryn Schurtz, and her fiancé, Joseph Kearney, were killed on Wednesday in a crash on Interstate 78.

She graduated from Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey. There is no further information on Kearny.
